Hey guys.

 

A bit hard to check in this kind of progress without screwing everything up. Redoing a whole map takes time.  So image updates.

 

It has been taking a bit longer to fine tune the world machine file that is generating this to get something that I like. This part takes the longest. It is where I am still at.

 

 

We are breaking the map up into 3 different biomes.

 

Forest,  Shooting for more a northern arizona forest/southern utah forests. Kind of a dry forest.

Sedona,  red terraced rocks. Like what is already in the map along the river

Sandy desert, Help break up the desert some

 

Colors are not final. Just to help see where things are

Trees I have been picking out.  Some of them need work. will be redoing the aspens and birch leafs. Adding additional trees or plants shouldn't affect performance much. They all get merged onto acouple texture sheets that are already there

Some rocks we plan on using

Yay I have a potato and some lemons I test with.

 

Not looking to make the fps much lower then it already is on low.  Need to still meet our min requirements

Think of people who worked their ass off to buy a computer that can handle the game without limitations

Also some other awesome news is we can put a lot of detail in collections that only turn on and off at the high settings as long as they are small ferns and detail objects that can't be hidden behind.

 

Overall our next patch should bring a lot smoother collections rendering (trees rocks etc).  

 

(while we wait for the larger map changes).

 

I was thinking about just putting some temp towns on the map in areas that need towns as well.  Like just copy paste for now and we can change it up later, but at least to give some more lootable areas.

i agree for those who said that "what about those players who's using not well pc's? maybe if you're gonna fix the "ping problem"(lower the effects). im not saying neither teasing those ppl who has a low quality pc, but what i'm saying is.. lessen the effects. so others can still play it as well. ^_^

people that have really low fps, do you run this game on a Cartboard box as Case, with a potato for cpu and a lemon as Gpu?


i still have an old pc: 6years old now, wich i bought for 800ish EU and i can still run this game on low settings with 80-90 fps
